Flood and Cyclone Relief Appeals


Auckland January and February 2023 Flooding

Beginning on Friday, 27 January 2023, regions across the upper North Island of New Zealand experienced widespread catastrophic floods caused by heavy rainfall, with Auckland being the most significantly affected.
Severe flash flooding occurred across Auckland from around 5:00 pm on 27 January local time, after heavy rain in the afternoon. Flooding was widespread across the city, with West Auckland and North Shore being the worst affected areas. NIWA reported that an entire summer's worth of rain fell within one day in what it described as a 1-in-200-year event. The event is considered to be the worst floods in Auckland's modern history. Over the following days other areas of the upper North Island were impacted.
Following lighter rain on 30 and 31 January, areas of Auckland flooded for a second time on the morning of 1 February after more heavy downpours.
Many of the affected areas are inside the boundaries of Rotary District 9910. Rotarians and Rotary Clubs have responded by assisting each other and their communities with the cleanup and recovery.

Thank you to Rotarians inside our District, across New Zealand and internationally for the contribution of funds towards our appeal

As a result we have supported a number of excellent relief efforts, both supporting community organisations and families within the affected parts of our District. 
There are still some funds available which Rotary Clubs or their Charitable Trusts from District 9910 can apply for.
